Navigating the Public and Private School Admissions: 
a 3-part series to guide families in middle and high school applications 

One of the biggest issues for families continues to be the upset in children's learning as a result of the pandemic. Whether at school or online, education has entered uncharted waters. Some families may find themselves unexpectedly seeking different educational options for their children. Others, already planning school changes, suddenly are facing different procedures and concerns than in usual times. Where do families begin when they are considering a change of school for their children? 

The Cornell Club of New York is ready with experts to help! Our speakers will share proven strategies for parents to support their children in school choices and applications, as well as key tips and guides to those considering applying out – whether to public or private schools. 

Attendees are invited to register for any or all of the presentations.

Wednesday, May 4th at 7:00-8:00 pm EDT: "Finding a Seat in the New NYC Public School Admissions" Presentation and Q&A by Maurice Frumkin 

Dramatic changes are here for New York City public school system admissions, from pre-K talented and gifted, to coveted neighborhood middle schools, up to the crown jewels of the NYC system – its eight specialized high schools. In this webinar, longtime NYC public school über-expert Maurice Frumkin will discuss the landscape of public school admissions in NYC, impacts due to COVID, and the current state of selective public school admissions. Bring your questions for Q&A, too!

He has over 15 years of experience counseling schools, families and other organizations on school admissions.
